Mariner outboard

Am going to look at this this afternoon.
Are they any good?
Is it worth the asking price?
Any one know how much they weigh roughly?
It's a 1986.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks

I used to have the 9.9 version of that engine manufactured around the same year, very good engine, I'd guess that would weigh around 60kg and at that price I'd consider it a bargain

I was guessing this might be slightly heavier as its older....?

I would've thought that was a lot of money for something that was over 25 years old?

re any good: as long as you have a back up engine which you will need anyway for being on the sea, due the usual checks and take a punt. As has been said many times on here engines are about how well they have been kept. Not just how old they are.

looks clean for its age, but i would say it was too old for the money.
you looking at hanging it off your prowave

Well that was the plan!
Decided against it now due to the weight and the boat is only rated for a 20.

The hunt for a new OB continues.
